Bicycle Doctor Custom Builds

Your idea is our passion

Custom builds are a great joy for us and something we've been doing for decades. When you start thinking about a custom build, just get in touch with us by phone, email, or popping in for a nice chat and we'll talk you through the options.

Step one:Choose a frame
This can be a frame supplied by ourselves, or you can supply it and we can go from there.

Step two:Choose a colour
Whether you're buying the latest Surly, or you're revamping a 1960s steel beauty, this is something we can look at from as little as £100 per frameset, including transportation costs and tapping labour. And even better, depending on material, certain components can be recoloured too! There is great pleasure to be had in a matching Tubus rack, for example. Our most popular option is powder coating, and we are able to talk over colour samples and finishes.
New bikes that aren't being custom built are also available for colour changes.

Step three:Choose your components
Whether you have a detailed dream spec, or you're not so sure but you know what you'd like it to be able to do, we can help make your fantasy a reality. We can give different options for builds to offer a range of budgets, too. It may be that for what you're after a complete custom build is recommended, it might be better to go for a standard spec and modify it. We're happy to advise on the impacts different options have on cost efficiency, wait times, and ride style.

Step four:The wait game
This is the hardest part! The staff member who you speak to will be able to advise on an accurate wait time. If when your bike is ready to be collected you can't make it down straight away don't worry - we will keep it safe for you

Step five:New bike day!
Custom builds can be collected in-store or delivered to your home. Our staff are always there to answer any questions you might have and love putting together wonderful rides.
